Consumes More Oil Than Any Vehicle I've Ever Owned

The vehicle is beautifully designed compared to a lot of SUV's nowadays, it gets great MPGs, sometimes but you can't overlook the issues that they have. There is a fatal flaw in the design of the engine and their high pressue direct injection fuel pumps. My equinox is out of warranty and is now in need of a $3000 repair in order to stop its oil consuming ways. At last check it consumed 2+ quarts of oil in just 2000 miles. If GM would stand behind their mistakes and defects I would recommend this vehicle. But how could I ever suggest this and allow another person to go through what I am going through with this pile of garbage. Google Equinox Oil Consumption yourself and you'll see.

Winter driving (remote starter warmup)gets 20mph.Like comfortable power seat, large mirrors. Dash controls are easy to use without taking eyes off road. Don't have to brake as hard at lights when tranny downshifts and slows car. It was purchased for wife about 10 months ago. She loves driving it. Likes backup camera and liftgate. 6 cyl is able to haul 600 pounds without any change in performance. If i have to replace my pickup truck it will be with a second nox.

Having been totally satisfied with our 2007 Pontiac Torrent, we wanted a similar car when we traded for a newer model. We chose the sister product in the Chey line, the Equinox. The size and comfort is perfect for us, and we enjoy an increase of nearly 5 miles/gal. Glad to have On-Star back. ECO systm takes geting used to as it does make acceleration feel sluggish.

Cargo space behind second seat very small-car is much smaller than it appears! Many blind spots. Like steering and brakes, handling. Yet to see anything close to 32 mpg. Nice radio and climate controls. Hard to go through bank and restaurant drive-throughs with window seated so high.

I love my 2010 Chevy Equinox LT and all the features it has. I have a rear back up camera, digital heating and cooling icons. And even though it is a 4 cylinder it has get up and go. I also like the remote start feature and the bluetooth capability when my phone rings it automatically comes through my radio once I synced my bluetooth with my phone. The vehicle has a lot of neat features on it.

I bought this vehicle new when the re-design occurred for the 2010 model year. I wanted a relatively large vehicle that could get good gas mileage and the 32mpg hwy rating was great. I have been thrilled since with the extra details that the vehicle has that make driving a pleasure. I have the 2LT. The voice commands are great. USB connectivity for music is great. The automatic climate controls are great. The fan slows down when you get a phone call. The interior is very quiet. The remote start turns on the heated seats if it is too cold out. On top of all of that, it is very safe. I have my great mileage people moving commuter and it is full of other creature comforts that makes driving more pleasant. Highly recommended. The 4cyl model I have is not a race car but it has plenty of power for me.

Although I haven't had mine that long I really like the style and ride. It handles well on the turns. I'm hoping to save on gas mileage. I had to get used to driving a 4 Cly. again but it seems to pick speed up fast enough. I too don't care for the rear headrests being so big and not adjustable. Also the center console seems a bit to big and takes up space when having to wear a Winter coat it's a little snug. The heater/air cond. fan is very loud. I look forward to finding out how well it does in the snow with the AWD.
